Fired DeKalb police chief: 'I was unique'
July 15, 2009 --

Fired DeKalb police chief Terrell Bolton testified today he was exempt from county procedures forbidding police executives from taking compensatory time. He said Vernon Jones, former DeKalb CEO, promised Bolton comp time in 2007 when he was hired. “My deal was that I had followed the [comp time] policy as established by my boss,” he testified as an appeal hearing on his firing resumed. “I was an executive and I was unique.”
